HYB: Using the best available

Yes, and this could prove to be very frustrating if you are a small 
hybridiser trying to keep up with someone like Schreiners. But why even 
think of being 'behind'? If you're creative, and have your own ideas of 
what you want to produce, you go in your own direction. (Like our Lloyd 
with his rebloomers and SA's) and let the others chase your tail when 
they realise you have something worth having. If your a small 
hybridiser, it's perhaps the only way to get anywhere. IMHO anyway.
